"Down in New Orleans" as written by and John Kay....
Down in New Orleans
The nights are hot and long
Ev'ry day's Saturday night
Down in the quarter
The music's loud and strong
Wish I'd be there tonight

Down in New Orleans
The nights are free and wild
Women will treat you all right
Down from the quarter they're calling me
And I wish I could go tonight

Every time I walk on by
The joints on Bourbon Street
I feel a glow from my head
Right down to my feet
They're places of ev'ry description
Where no one cares who you are
There are people of all persuasions
Carousing in the crowded bars

Down in New Orleans
The nights are free and wild
Women will treat you all right
Down from the quarter they're calling me
And I wish I could go tonight

Walk right on in, sit right down
Drink a hurricane
While everybody gathers 'round
To watch the dancers undulate
The workin' girl in the corner
Is hitting the local bar
And everyone in the quarter
Brace themselves for Mardi Gras
